Tom Browning Perfect Game Box Score

The small crowd that patiently waited nearly three hours for a 10 p.m. start were treated to a magnificent pitchers duel that featured Tim Belcher taking a no-hitter into the the sixth inning and Tom Browning completing the first ever Cincinnati Reds perfect game.

''I remember Ron Oester tackling me and after that, it, honestly, felt like an out-of-body experience. It was like I was fifteen, twenty feet above the pile and looking down at it.'' - Tom Browning

Tom Browning Perfect Game Box Score



Tom Browning remembered three players very well and commented ten years later about them, " Mike Marshall hit a ball to right field that was hit pretty well, but Paul O'Neill caught it. There was a ball (hit by Marshall ) that (Chris) Sabo backhanded at third, and (Rick) Dempsey hit a ball down the right field line that O'Neill caught."

The ball from the game used to sit on his mantel. Where is it now? ''I don't know if the kids played with it or not,'' Browning said. ''I think it's in the woods behind our house. It didn't have anything on it, and it was just sitting there. I guess the kids needed a ball to play with."

The game was delayed two-and-a-half hours, but when it finally started Tom Browning was at his best throwing one-hundred two pitches and seventy-two for strikes.
